I am forcing myself to post today. Yes, forcing. I spent all day yesterday reading an awesome book called Magyk and I soooo want to start the next book in the series. I checked out all three at the library. I haven't been this excited about a book since Fablehaven. I had to post because I actually had some cute stuff and I want everyone to know that I am not dead or really depressed because of my gray hair!
We got to dog sit my in-laws dog Cowboy while they went down to Utah for the last couple of days. My kids were in heaven. Cowboy is a great dog and so well behaved around kids. Here's some of their activities. They put him down for a nap because he was cold:
Last night they made crowns and put them on. Cowboy's wouldn't stay on his head so they made him a belt crown. I don't think he really liked it on, but he didn't complain. (Don't mind the dirty kitchen behind my kids-you're not supposed to be looking at that anyway).

Alivia's favorite part about having Cowboy here was all the extra food we just had lying around:

She ate more than her fair share. Gross I know, but my older sister once ate dog food and she was all right, right?

My kids would be in heaven, too! How fun to play with cowboy at your own house!

How fun to be the dogsitter. I'm sure that Alivia will be fine. I remember freaking out when a little boy I babysat one time ate dog food. I'm sure your kitchen is not messy very often. I wish I could have seen it even worse, then I would feel better about myself. HAHAHA

Ha ha ha! You call that dirty?! I don't want to know what you think of MY kitchen! Anyway, that was really cute that the kids had so much fun with Cowboy. That's funny that Alivia was eating Cowboy's food. Katherine did the same thing with my brother's cat's food. Kinda gross.

Sounds like you guys need a dog. :) Thanks for the fun Saturday. It was nice to get out.

Thanks for telling my deep dark secrets! I think you are just jealous that your older sister doesn't have gray hair yet. =)
